Actress Alyssa Milano, in a series of tweets, expressed her disappointment. She wrote: “Today’s Supreme Court decision overturning #RoeVsWade will have deadly consequences, with the harm falling hardest on people of color who already face disproportionate discrimination in our country and struggle with a serious maternal mortality crisis.” In the following tweet, she mentioned, “If abortion is banned nationwide, pregnancy-related deaths could increase 21% nationwide and 33% among black women. Banning abortion will disproportionately impact people of color, LGBTQ+ communities, people struggling to make ends meet, young people, and people living in rural areas. She concluded, “To ban abortion is to control trans women and men. It’s about white supremacy, patriarchy and misogyny. It’s a sad day for America.

People will always have abortions.
These proceedings will not stop simply because Roe v. Wade is knocked down.
It will only prevent safe and legal abortions from taking place.

Everyone gets a gun but no one gets bodily autonomy. America.

I am furious. What happened today is not only a disgusting setback for women – undermining our ability to make decisions for our own bodies… but it’s also dangerous. You didn’t ban abortion, you banned access to SAFE abortion. #BansOffOurBodies

I am disgusted with my country and their consistent failure to protect the rights of others and keep their word. How do you reverse bad things? So many things to reverse that make sense. But is that what you chose?

Yeah, nobody tells me what I can and can’t do with my body. No one tells me who I should love or marry for that matter. America… you are in for the fight of your life.
